Preventing Homelessness

Housing Support

Brewery Lane provides an intensive resettlement service for 22 individuals who have experienced homelessness and problems with sustaining a tenancy. These projects aim to prepare clients for independent living to enable them to resettle in the city and reintegrate back into mainstream society. The project is staffed 24-hours a day, and offers a structured and stable environment where residents are given the space and support to address the issues that contributed to their homelessness.

Residents have their own self contained bed-sit, enabling them to experience a high degree of independent living. They are required to cook their own meals and be responsible for keeping their living areas clean and in a tenable condition. They must also take part in a planned programme of support based on their individual needs and aspiration. Residents have allocated key workers and co-workers who work closely with them and liaise with other housing/supporting agencies to ensure the individual is fully supported in their move towards independent living
